  1. Start the Jenkins Master VM and access the the URL

  2. Create a remote ssh session (Use PuTTY or Ubuntu Bash or Git Bash) And enter following command to get the initial password.

    $ sudo cat /var/lib/jenkins/secret/initialAdminPassword
  3. Copy the content of file displayed by cat command. And paste this password in jenkins web-page. Click continue button and then use Install Suggested Plugins

  4. After Plugin Installation, it should then ask for New User creation. Create a new user (Admin) for regular login into jenkins dashboard.

  5. After User creation, continue to dashboard.

  6. Now, SSH into Master node to generate new SSH-Key Pair and copy it to node-1

    # Become ROOT user
    $ sudo -i
    # Become jenkins user
    $ su - jenkins
    ## No password prompt
    # Generate SSH Key Pair
    $ ssh-keygen
    # Now, Copy SSH key
    $ ssh-copy-id jenkins@
    Enter Password: pass@12345
    Add to Known Server: Yes
    ## Now, test it..
    $ ssh -i .ssh/id_rsa jenkins@
    ## check if allowed to access node-1
    ## Exit from node-1
    $ exit
    # Print Private key on screen
    $ cat .ssh/
    # Copy the content of
    ## exit SSH Connection
    $ exit
  7. Now, You need to register 'node-1' with private-ip as jenkins slave instance.
